Artwork for Tales and Relayer

http://www.rocktunz.com/images/uploa...%20Relayer.JPG

Came upon this interesting picture of Tales and Relayer side by side. Thought poeple here might be interested. I never knew that the artwork for these albums connected.

Probably didn't and just an interesting coincident.

They do, partially, if you blow up the scale of relayer to fit.

Re: Artwork for Tales and Relayer

My two favorite Yes album covers. I think I saw this on yesfans or somewhere.

One is the back cover for an album(relayer) and one is the front (tales). Personally I think it's a coincidence but it is kind of weird.

Re: Artwork for Tales and Relayer

that can happen with a artist body of work...my favorite x had 3 paintings that worked beautifully together, but he'd done them all separate and at different times...they were seamless...magical but it happens

Re: Artwork for Tales and Relayer

the castle on the Relayer cover art has been inspired by an original Roger's Dean drawing from 1966 and called ' Happy birthday'= ; a name given by Donald Lemkuhl who received it as a gift from Dean, D Lemkuhl is the poet who wrote the poem on the back of the Relayer LP cover and the texte for the TFPO's tour programme; the original drawing was planned for the inside cover of Relayer but eventually not used; Dean worked on TFTO's drawings when in Japan with yes in 1973 ; Relayer both drawings and recordings are Dean's favs

Re: Artwork for Tales and Relayer

The cover (TFTO) contains many famous landmarks, (read here )

Seems that R Dean used one of the same 'famous landmarks' pile o' rocks on Relayer too. ;-)


edit: Somewhere... i have the Roger Dean book 'Views" that has great info about these are projects.
